The OFFLINE ART exhibition format:

Browser-based digital art works are broadcast locally from wifi routers which are not connected to the Internet. Each art work is assigned a single wifi router which is accessible through any device, like smart-phones, tablets or laptops. To access the different art works, the visitor has to connect to each network individually. The name of the network reflects the name of the artist. No matter what URL is opened, only the specific artwork appears in the browser. A small web server holding the art piece is installed on a USB flash drive which is connected to the router. Like frames holding the art, the routers are hung in the exhibition space which is otherwise empty. The art i tself becomes visible only on the visitor’s private screen.The pieces are locally widely accessible but disconnected from the Internet.

Photo booth

with 2 comments

Very low low low tech photo booth during Club Transmediale CTM. In mechanical turk style somebody in the “machine” draws your portrait by hand. “Sit still for 1 minute”. hehe

I think this piece was part of the Sick Girls on opening evening at CTM 25.1.2008.

Random Screen at Transmediale

without comments

Check out a new movie documenting my project “Random Screen” at the Transmediale Berlin this year in feburary. I was lucky. The piece was placed right in the center of the exhibition entrance and you could already see it from the staircase. The audio in the background is Herwig Weisers “Death before Disco”, one of my favorite pieces at the Transmediale this year. Find quicktime movie in better quality here and some more pictures on flickr.
